Spookily enough, that's the exact date when I started my board too!
I was a member and then a mod and then an admin on a phpBB site where the owner went AWOL and we found out the domain name was going to expire so me and the mods took the decision to start a new site and see how many would follow us. Luckily 120 did and the site as gone on from there.
I also got involved in setting up a couple of other sites not long after that.
Like many of us have I did a lot of MOD adding at the start and messed a lot up too! Now I keep it a lot more simple even though I'm more experienced at it.
I switched the original site to phpBB3 back in september and I (and the members) are loving it.
I joined here a couple of months before I set up the site in order to get some general information and then I just stuck around giving back a little help in return.
